Justin Talbot on pitch one of the Emperor Wall.


P1. .12, 90’. Thin, balancy and sometime powerful climbing characterize this pitch. The first 50’ to a no hands rest is about .11a (intermediate anchor here). The next 40’ is .12aish and a 15’ traverse right ends in a hard move to left facing flakes. Bolts protect the pitch.

P2. .13a, 100’. Start up the shallow, left-facing corner, then traverse up and left to a 60’ flared crack/groove to the top. There are several .12 sections in a row with little rest in between.

Rappel Finback with a 60m rope.


P1. Bolts.

P2. Bolts and three or four medium cams for the final 50'.
